The Complete Adventures of Hazard & Partridge

The Complete Adventures of Hazard & Partridge

From August, 1919 to November of 1920, the exploits of Hazard and Partridge appeared in stories that demonstrated not only a flair for mystery and adventure, but also a personal acquaintance with the Far East, on the part of the author. Robert J. Pearsall spent some years in China, both before the 1911 revolution that abolished the Qing Dynasty and established the Republic of China, and immediately after this tremendous upheaval, when warlords, republicans and would-be emperors vied for power. The Adventures of Hazard and Partridge take place in the years following the revolution, in a China struggling between the old and the new, a China Pearsall was all too familiar with. Basing many aspects of his stories on historical figures, groups, and events, Pearsall supplied a tether to actual Chinese history that one would not necessarily expect to find in the pulps.
